Function keys don't work on latest version for iPad,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Apple Wireless Keyboard MC184LL/B (Personal Computers)
A word of caution! The function keys for the newest version just purchased from this site don't work with the ipad2. This apparently doesn't apply to earlier versions but it does to the ones they are currently selling. It appears to be a software problem with the model mc1844ll/b model. While trying to sort this out I went to the apple site and there is a long discussion string on this with a lot of frustration. There was speculation that a future software upgrade for the iPad may fix it but the apple folks apparently just said too bad, do you want a refund and won't explain even though their ads state that the function keys (brightness, volume, etc.) work with the iPad but they don't with the current recently released model. Two stars for it being nice looking and nice touch on the main keys but not four or five for not living up to advertisements and not testing this before releasing a new model.
